Our second library is for those who want more color control, we has a full high-speed hardware PWM control system with 9 (512 color) or 12-bit (4096) RGB color (depending on how long the strip is). You can now animate strands of over a hundred of LEDs using only 3 digital SPI pins.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
andy, we’re working with some factories to try and get something like that but there is nothing on the market that we like so far…so this has to be custom spec’d. another thing is that the price might be much higher since its custom. you can get fairly good 9 or 16-bit color control with our arduino library (which can be ported easily) so please try it!
